Headteacher's Welcome


Mr Crehan, our Headteacher.

My name is Mr Crehan and I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of St Gerard’s Catholic Primary School. It is my pleasure to welcome you to our school website.

St Gerard’s Catholic Primary School is a one-form entry school, located in Castle Vale, Birmingham. Our school is a very special place where we 'live, love, learn and pray together' as a family.

We have a wonderful school community, and we take enormous pride in knowing all our children well and ensuring they have the very best start to their primary education in a loving and caring environment.

As a Catholic School, our faith is central to everything we do.

All of our children are welcomed and valued as a unique member of God’s family. The values taught to us through the Gospels, guide us in how we nurture the children in our care.

Our patron saint, Saint Gerard Majella, dedicated his life to following Jesus, working hard and helping the poor and underprivileged – he is an inspiration to us every day.

At St Gerard’s, we have extremely high expectations and are proud of our traditional values. The whole staff are committed to providing a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum for all children. We aim to develop our children morally, socially and academically so that they leave our school as aspirational, responsible young people, ready to contribute positively to the world.

Having worked here for four years, I know first-hand that the strong support and commitment of our parents and parish community is something that drives the success of this school. I look forward to continuing this partnership throughout the years for the good of all the children who learn here.

God bless,

Mr A Crehan
Headteacher
